HUNTINGDON, Pa. -- The Juniata College International Studies program recently received a $25,000 grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities for the 2004-2005 academic year to fund an international film study program.

The grant will fund the showing of three films during the spring semester and sponsor a two-week seminar on film study that will feature film discussion groups led by guest discussion leaders who are specialists in film study and presentations by Juniata faculty.

The grant, written by James Roney, professor of Russian, also will fund showings for three films and the purchase of reading materials for the college?s international studies faculty.

?The grant will allow us to improve our understanding of film study and help us learn ways to integrate film into our classrooms,? says Bradley Andrew, assistant professor of economics and director of the international studies program.
